NEW HAVEN — A team of Winooski-based engineers is proposing to build one of the state’s largest solar farms on a 40-acre portion of a 180-acre parcel on the west side of Route 7, across from the Hill Top RV Center in New Haven.
The proposed project, on land owned by Albert and Gail Freyer, would feature 178 ground-mounted solar trackers with photovoltaic panels capable of harvesting enough energy to power 500 homes annually. It would also include an organic farm operation calling for sheep and goats to graze near the high-tech equipment.
Editor’s note — You’ve seen the headlines, you’ve heard the personal stories from friends and neighbors: Vermont needs to create more opportunities for its young people or else they will leave the state. But many young adults choose to stay here and many others return after a few years away.
ADDISON COUNTY — As students at the region’s four high schools this weekend take their diplomas in hand, the question on many minds will likely be, “What next?”
VERGENNES — Officials from the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) in late May revoked the license of the operator of Alden Place Residential Care Home LLC in Vergennes for a series of 23 alleged violations that DAIL Deputy Commissioner Brendan Hogan said affected “the health and safety of the residents.”
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association (MVAA) has spent the past 40 years delivering critical medical services to ailing county residents.
Now the MVAA is hoping the community will help it deliver on a new, state-of-the-art emergency response headquarters that is nearing completion on land just north of Porter Medical Center off South Street.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College students have long commented on the empty back wall of the Wright Memorial Theater, a 58-by-53-foot white space facing a parking lot off of Shannon Street.
But if the efforts of recent graduate Kate Lupo pay off, the wall will soon get a makeover in the form of an environmentally-themed mural — a reproduction of a set of 16 prints by Vermont artist and Middlebury College alumna Sabra Field, called ‘Cosmic Geometry.’
